- Vegan & cruelty free
- Sustainable bamboo case
- Comes with a reusable pouch
- Effective and natural ingredients help prevent irritation
These natural ingredients are what makes Zao makeup so special and amazing!
Organic bamboo leaves hydrosol: Derived from the distillation of bamboo leaves, it mattifies oily skin. Moisturising and soothing, it is also useful for dry and sensitive skin types. Thanks to its high content of silica, it leaves a soft and velvety touch to the skin.
Bamboo stem powder: A white substance extracted from the nodes of the bamboo. Thanks to its high content of silica, it remineralises, moisturises and regenerates your skin while reducing the shine of oily areas.
Organic bamboo rhizome macerate: As bamboo powder or bamboo leaves hydrosol, this material is extremely rich in organic silica, which is needed by skin to maintain elasticity and youthful appearance.
Olive squalane: Extracted from olive oil, plant Squalane is a derivative of squalene which is a natural component of human sebum. It has excellent affinity with the skin due to its similarity to the skin’s natural lipids, and its emollient properties make it an ideal active ingredient. It strengthens the skin lipid barrier, softens the skin and protects it from dehydration.
ZAO makeup may not be 100% plastic free just yet but they are working towards plastic free in the future and are constantly reducing the plastic in their packaging.
This bamboo sumblim’soft primer is refillable, meaning you are still reducing waste and plastic each time you buy the refill rather than buying a whole new plastic casing. The refills do come in PET recyclable plastic.
ZAO as a brand and their products are the best eco-friendly options for sustainable, vegan and natural makeup out there, I do truly believe this is a far better choice than purchasing a completely new plastic packaged makeup. ZAO are always working towards reducing their plastic which is also why it is so great to support this brand. Their makeup is fantastic and works even better than synthetic cosmetics.

How To Use
Pump a small amount for application and then apply evenly from the centre to the outside of the face and on the neck, using either a makeup brush or your fingertips.
Beauty tip: The Sublim’Soft can be used by itself or under the foundation for easy application and achieve longer-lasting makeup, but it is also perfect for using instead of a mattifying powder.
Simply apply before foundation to achieve a naturally matt look without the need for finishing powder. Your skin looks flawless and matt, yet completely natural.
You can also use over foundation: simply pump some product into your hands and apply to key shine-prone areas of your face, blending in with fingertips.
This product works particularly well for those with oily t-zones to help keep shine at bay, and also for those wanting to conceal open pores or fine facial hairs that are accentuated by finishing powders.
It is also ideal for mature customers who feel that finishing powders are ageing, and for those with dry skin for whom finishing powders can perhaps look ‘cakey’.
How To Refill
We will have the refills available for this primer soon.
The liquid foundation comes in a fully recyclable PET plastic tube.
To refill, untwist the black pump and squeeze the contents of the plastic tube into the glass container.
The founder David Reccole, of this incredible organic, vegan and natural makeup brand has over 10 years of experience in organic cosmetics. With a vision to provide enriched cosmetics with active organic ingredients and sustainable packaging this amazing company ZAO was born!
David was inspired to use Bamboo for organic make-up from when he received a natural gift made from bamboo! The round shape of this bamboo gift is the same shape as the ZAO make-up castings produced today. Not only is the ZAO the brand focused on using Bamboo for casings but also as an ingredient in their cosmetic range.
Aside from its stunning design, Bamboo is very specific for its high level of silica, essential for skin elasticity. ZAO is the first brand with such a connection with packaging and ingredients.
ZAO created 100% natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients to enhance your skin’s natural beauty. This brand and it’s cosmetics are certified organic by Ecocert, every product is free from all toxic chemicals including parabens, instead using micronised silver as a preservative.
ZAO provides stunning colours and textures with a combination comfort and long lasting hold which is why I love this brand, their makup is incredible, it’s amazing that their range is organic, natural and vegan! An innovative product presented in a modern and sustainable material: bamboo.
I am so glad to be stocking ZAO makeup, this brand continues to develop packaging that is plastic free and sustainable. Although some of their products still come in plastic, they are working towards eradicating plastic completely in the future, which is why I want to support this incredible brand. They offer refills for most of their products which is by far a much more sustainable alternative to buying completely new, fully plastic makeup.
